I've carved out purposeful time reflecting on what this whole season means to me. And, I've spent time in this wonderful devotional a woman in my church community creates each year (you can find it here: http://easter.org/wordpress/advent-devotional-2012-re-claiming-christmas/ ). The hidden blessing in all of this is that through these simple acts, I've taken the long journey from my head to my heart, where the joy and hope of Advent and Christmas seemed to have lodged themselves securely.
How are you re-claiming Christmas? If you're not Christian, I'm sure there's something in your life you need to re-claim. What is it? How are you going about that?
May the peace and joy of this season, Hanukkah, Christmas, or otherwise, fill you, your family, and your corner of the world.
